It is interesting to observe President Obama’s approach to Israel and Syria. His hands off approach falls in line nicely with what bible prophecy speaks concerning America’s role in the End Times. America is nowhere to be found in the bible or bible prophecy. However, that does mean that America will be like what all the doomsday people say. America will be one of the ten kingdoms of the world during the Tribulation time period (Daniel 7). Having written that, I will follow that up with there could be and most likely will be a time after the Rapture of God’s church of chaos. That is an opinion based upon an assumption, therefore, take it with a grain of salt. I assume this because if people are being Raptured or “caught up,” then it would seem that the rest of world would be thrown in chaos. Stock markets would pullet and when that happens as we have seen in recent years things get crazy.
The United States decision to stay out of Syria and Israel’s way says that our role in the Middle East is diminishing. We no longer have an influence in the Middle East. In the past America would have already stepped into this conflict and shut Syria down. The US gives lip service to Israel but we are not going to be sending any troops over there. What does this mean? It means that this conflict in the Middle East is going to continue. It means that we are losing influence and removing ourselves as a world power little by little. It means that Russia is gaining a foothold that will ultimately culminate in what Ezekiel 38 and 39 speak of concerning Gog and Magog. Lastly, it means that Syrian rebels will somewhere overthrow the government eventually and when they do I would not be surprised if the Antichrist rises up as their leader. It is only a matter of time and it is all unfolding before our eyes.
If you have trusted Christ as your savior then you do not have to worry, because He will rapture you up. (John 14:3; Revelation 22:17).
